Dangerous Secrets: Callaghan Brothers, Book 1 by Abbie Zanders

Two secret pasts… one passionate love story.

Taryn Malone is stranded, broke, and desperate for help. But even if the sexy bartender she’s been eyeing offers her a job for the evening… even if he seduces her with his impossibly intense blue eyes… even if every fiber of her heart tells her to stay with him… she can’t.

Because Taryn Malone doesn’t exist.

Jake Callaghan has been running the family’s Irish pub for years now. When he sees Taryn standing out alone in the rain, he does what he’s been trained to do as a SEAL – he rescues her. It has nothing to do with her full, firm curves, or her loose, golden-blonde hair, or the way she brushes against him that sends lightning bolts through his body. It’s just the right thing to do.

Really.

But both Taryn and Jake are hiding secrets from each other. Dangerous secrets. And neither one of them knows just how dangerous it can be to fall in love…

Southern Comfort: Chandler’s Story (The Southern Series Book 1) by Shelley Stringer

SOUTHERN COMFORT is the first of three books in the SOUTHERN Series…Romance, Paranormal Intrigue, Abduction, Murder, and Eternal Love.
Southern Comfort immerses the reader in the essence of southern Louisiana culture, history, voodoo and folklore. The supernatural story takes a back seat to the romantic story line between the protagonist, Chandler Collins, and the handsome dark-haired Navy SEAL, Banton Gastaneau.

When a car accident takes the lives of her parents, Chandler leaves the sheltered world of small-town Texas and moves to southern Louisiana. There she settles near her only remaining family – her aunt, uncle and cousins and plans to finish college at LSU.

Through the purchase and renovation of an old antebellum house near campus, she meets two neighbors, ex-Navy SEALs Banton Gastaneau and John Calder, who appear to have a hidden agenda and seek much more than a casual friendship with Chandler. As Chandler works on a writing project and unlocks the secrets of the old house and local folklore, she is drawn into a world where blood-drinking Orcos, Sange-Mele half-breeds, Aldon protectors and spirits exist.

As Banton’s interest in Chandler moves from friend to protector to lover, the story moves from Chandler’s spirit-filled house to the college campus in Baton Rouge, the French Quarter in New Orleans, and the underground sewers of the city where Orco terrorists plot to destroy the SEAL team now protecting Chandler, endangering Chandler’s life.

Romance: Mina More (Cyborg Love Story with Fantasy Romance Adventure) by Morris Fenris

In the Southwest England of the near future, an area known to the central European powers in Brussels as ‘Sector 9G’, young IT professional Tim McNamee makes the decision to buy a cyborg bride named Mina. Several years later he tells his story; how his life had gotten to the point where he felt the need to buy a cyborg lover and the ups and downs of having a relationship with an artificially created person who owed her existence to him.

As time goes by, Mina becomes restless and begins to question the nature of her being, a search which leads to an underground religious group known as the ‘Association of God’s Children’. When she leaves her ‘habitation zone’ without permission from CyberG, the company that built her, Tim and Mina’s future together comes under threat.

Soon Mina finds herself caught between Tim, the only love of her short life, and a spiritual search that threatens to reveal more about the nature of her existence than she could possibly imagine. Tim tries to think of Mina as an independent person, but when she begins to claim supernatural powers and with the authorities closing in, will it ask too much of his logical beliefs and sensibilities?

Amazon Reader Reviews of Sector 9G:

“The description of this book captivated my attention and raised my curiosity; it made me want to read this story. In my opinion, cyborg romance is more like a science fiction subcategory which I have rarely encountered.

The baseline of the book is a subject that can easily be rooted into the realistic world – impossible love; What Morris Fenris actually does is to transpose a traditional theme into an original novel. And he manages to deliver a very good intrigue, a fast paced action and some beautifully described sceneries. All of these are in fact the proper ingredients which could turn this cyborg romance book into a best seller.

The super natural love stories seem to become very popular nowadays. However, the idea of living a fantasy love story next to a cyborg wife deserves a 5 star rating itself.”

“The author’s description of the relationship between Mina and Tim and their short life together is nothing short of amazing! How could anyone not fall in love with Mina? Her childlike curiosity of the world around her makes you feel a genuine connection to her. You know that her life will end, but you keep hoping that some miracle will happen to save her. I’m really hoping for a follow-up story about Mina and Tim.”

“This is not a science fiction/ fantasy love story that you’re going to want to miss. I have no doubt that this is one will be topping the best seller’s list for science fiction before long.”

“If cyborg seduction, supernatural love stories, or science fiction and fantasy best sellers is something that interests you this book will top your favorite list. I highly recommend it!”

“The interwoven concepts of dystopia, love, spirituality, occult, and authority make for a poignant story that keeps the reader in suspended disbelief, effectively infusing a semblance of truth to a tale that hits close to home.”

“Overall, I definitely recommend this book. If you like sci fi, fantasy, romance or even cyborg romance, then you’ll love this book.”

“Sector 9G is really different. Forget the mindless sex droids of Cherry 2000; the closest thing to Mina is Rachael of Blade Runner and even she falls short. This creative science fiction story is told from Tim’s first person POV, first bringing you current and then telling the story about his cyborg wife, Mina. It is unique in that it explores the idea of a cyborg soul in this fantasy love story.”

“I am always a sucker for romances and this one had a science fiction twist I had not read before…cyborg romance. It is a great idea and I can’t wait to see what else comes from this author. This really is a must read.”
